Learn QGIS from zero
Create, import data, analyze and generate final maps
Learn doing, through step by step use cases - All in the same environment of data.


This course originally was built in spanish, following the same lessons done in the popular course Learn ArcGIS Pro Easy!  We done it to demostrate than all this could be possible using open software; always in spanish.   Then, some english users asked us, we created a english version of the course; it´s the reason why the interface of the software is in spanish.


Geographic Information Systems using QGIS.

  • -All the exercises you can do in ArcGIS Pro, made with open source software.

  • -Import data from CAD to GIS

  • -Attribute-based thematization

  • – Rules-based calculations

  • -Layout print

  • -Import coordinates from Excel

  • – Digitalization tricks

  • -Geoeferencing images

All available files so you can put the acquired knowledge into practice.

Done by an expert, spoken aloud, in a single work environment to learn gradually using the AulaGEO methodology

The basic with QGIS

Analysis data

Buffer analysis

In this video you will learn to analyze the area of influence from a spatial object, using buffer parameters.

Publishing contents from QGIS

Map generation

In this video you will learn how to create final maps, configuring the type of page and sending it to image format

Let´s do it in AulaGEO - step by step excercises

Exercise 1. Import CAD data to GIS

Try the following exercise, importing data from a dwg file to QGIS

Exercise 2. Import coordinates from Excel for split a polygon

Try to perform the following exercise, importing data from an Excel file into QGIS.

Exercise 3. Calculation of areas and composition of calculated fields

Try to perform the following exercise, calculating the areas of the plots in square meters, hectares and forming a composite key from the centroid data.

Exercise 4. Buffer Analysis

Try to perform the following exercise, creating an area of influence (buffer) with the reference points established in the exercise.

Exercise 5. Attribute labeling

Try to perform the following exercise, labeling the properties based on the information contained in the database.

Exercise 6. Thematization by attributes

Try to do this thematization exercise, based on the attributes of the database.

Exercise 7. Digitization tricks

Perform the exercise contained in the video, to edit layers using the tricks explained.

Exercise 8. Gereferencing images

Georeference the image using the control points as explained in the video.

Bonus lesson

The better of Excel GIS/CAD hacks

We are working in our next course The better of Excel GIS/CAD hacks for our satisfied students.

Rate our course and we will give you a licence to use the app which you had seen in the video.

gTools is a service where you can upload a Excel file with UTM coordinates,

  • You can see the coordinates in google maps

  • You can see that in Street View

  • You can change the projection

And, download it as a kml file to display in Google Earth.

How you can get the licence?

Tell us than you are happy with the course, rating it with more than 4.5, answer this message and we will share you the licence code.

You can view and review the lecture materials indefinitely, like an on-demand channel.
Definitely! If you have an internet connection, courses on Udemy are available on any device at any time. If you don't have an internet connection, some instructors also let their students download course lectures. That's up to the instructor though, so make sure you get on their good side!
